First official wedding photos

There are so many things for me to share, but I'm sure many of you out there are keen to see some the official wedding photos.

You see, for the solemnisation ceremony, my family and I decided to spend a bomb on photography as it is considered the best investment for a wedding. After many years, wedding photos will be the ones that will help to bring back those lovely memories. Hence, we decided to use Saiful Nang as our official photographer. Yup, SN himself.

To my surprise, the groom's side also brought along their own official photographer when they came over to the house on that day. Hence, in total, we had 3 photographers (2 from CS, and 1 from pixelart) and 2 videographers (f rom Manggis).

We received both CDs, one from CS and the other one from pixelart , containing our raw wedding photos on 20th march. Fast right?

I have yet to email back Candid Syndrome--need to choose the appropriate photos for them to edit and put into the 2 photobooks.

As for Pixelart, they are just so efficient! We received the photo album on the 28th, and we were very impressed indeed! Just love the photos and the album itself.

From the heart of a bride

I've been wanting to update my blog since the wedding..There is just so much to share and I'm currently having the best time of my life..

If you have watched the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button..remember the part when Brad Pitt met up with Cate Blanchett after he left her for quite some, and at that time both of them were almost the same age..The two lovebirds were just spending every minute of their time together, laughing and joking with each other...I really love that scene, as both of them appeared to be crazy with each other. That is exactly what I'm feeling at this moment.

I just can't find the words to explain how extremely happy both of us are. To those who know the journey that both of us have gone through, you would most likely understand how we feel. To finally be together with the one person that you love the most, it is indeed at beautiful experience..

For the past one week, I try my best to treasure every single detail of my experiences. I told my other half before falling asleep one night--that I'm so worried that this wonderful feeling will go away. He told me not to worry and assured me the feeling that I have will stay..

We often ask each other every day---macam tak percaya kita dah kahwin, kan?

It's amazing that even though I've known my other half for ten years, little that I realise that I could still love him more and more. Seeing him bond with my family members and him being so understanding with everything, it does make me feel like the luckiest girl in the world.

Here's my favourite photo---taken from

I thank Allah everyday for granting my finally marry my one and only true love..

Another 3 days to go..

I'm beginning to feel the wedding jitters as the big day is approaching..

Regarding the wedding invitations..the wedding is just around the corner and some of the wedding invitation are not even sent yet! A friend of mine who is staying in Gemas smsed me today and said 'Aku kan tinggal area kampung, don't think that your card will reach in time..'
Another issue is that some of my friends who mean a lot to me are unable to attend the wedding..the ones that I'm close to..It's sad when I think about it, but I guess that is one of the things that I've to deal with..

The funny thing is that I'm selectively choosing friends to invite for the nikah when there are so many nikah invitation cards to spare, and there are tonnes of friends that I'm inviting for the reception -with limited invitation cards for the reception. You see, since mum almost fully handmade the invitation cards for the reception, she managed to make only 250, and I used up all of them today! Both mum and I are anxious at the moment--it is either we didn't make enough invitation cards or we invited too many people... I just hope that mum's house can take the crowd..

As for tomorrow, I'll be my last day at work and I'm off for my holiday! Yippee!

Vital things to do 2 days before the wedding:
1. get my hair done--touch up my hair colour---which should have been done last week
2. manicure
3. body scrub
4. try wearing the wedding gown with the jewelery
5. sms all my friends to remind them about the wedding
6. get enough sleep!

For the past few days, everytime before I fall asleep, I will think to myself--Owh man, I can't believe my status is going to change soon..No more feeling proud that I'm still single. Gosh. It has finally hit me.
